The antique Pergamon altar was a model for the main grandstand of the Zeppelin field. Built in the years 1935-1937, the building was regarded as a prime example of National Socialist state architecture.
Today the ruin also serves as a grandstand for spectators when car races take place at the Norisring, the Nuremberg street circuit. B. the German Touring Car Championship (DTM). There it is then called the stone grandstand.
